Accused Murderer In Court 01 Sep 12

A rural Paynesville man who faces 1st-degree murder charges along with his 82-year-old father was in court on Thursday for an Omnibus Hearing. 46-year-old Timothy Huber and his father, Delbert Huber, face the possibility of life in prison for the shooting death of 43-year-old Timothy Larson of Albertville last October. The killing apparently stemmed in part from the Hubers’ farm equipment being parked at the Larson farm, and in court on Thursday a Kandiyohi County sheriff’s detective testified on the condition of the tractors at the time. The Hubers had alleged that someone had put something in the engines of the tractors, causing the oil levels to be over capacity, and that the lights had been left on in one of them as well. The detective reportedly checked out the tractors a few days after Larson’s death, and found nothing unusual. The Hubers had moved the machinery from the Larson farm after a confrontation with the landowner, but they reportedly returned the next morning, when Delbert Huber allegedly shot Larson in the chest with a high-powered rifle. The elder Huber’s trial was recently rescheduled, and is now set to begin on September 4th.
